Owen Watkin update

Chris Towers, Ospreys’ Medical Performance Manager, has confirmed that Owen Watkin was released from hospital on Saturday evening with “no structural damage”.

The young centre suffered an impact to the neck late on during Saturday’s bonus point win over Cardiff Blues at the Liberty Stadium and was removed from the field and taken to hospital as a precautionary measure. 

Towers confirmed today that having been thoroughly checked out, Watkin went home late on Saturday evening and will report to Llandarcy Academy of Sport on Monday to be further assessed by the medical team before any necessary treatment plan can be put in place ahead of his return to play.
